  1. @scribus If I played and would win then I were content with just a normal-sized house. Nothing fancy, which leaves more money to buy cool stuff. My house would need only a big enough space for a library for my current and future comics collection size.

  2. A channel I can recommend is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3bosUr3WlKYm4sBaLs-Adw This guy has a huge collection of vintage computers and attempts to repair them. In the recent year he had also quite some videos about devices from the Apollo space program.

  3. @scribus I wasted so much time at the border in my life. Once we were stuck 24h. A Game Boy can only do so much.

  4. @scribus Well... My grandparents live 600km away. During these times I don't want that my mother uses a train, and I could see my grandparents as I haven't seen them for quite a while.
    In the past my family drove to my grandparents 4 times a year and it took us 8 to 10 hours (slower car, border passing, crappier roads).

  5. I drove about 1200km (745 miles) this weekend. I visited my grandparents and picked up my mother back home. I drove most of the time 150km/h (93 mph) and needed only 5 hours for each direction. I'm somewhat exhausted.

  8. I've officially spent more on upgrades for my folding bike than I paid for the used folding bike. At least the front light kicks ass with the hub dynamo. The light is blindingly bright in comparison to what I'm used to.

  9. It's really depressing to see the infection rate rising so fast. In average Germany has about 300 infections per 100000 people in a week. Some districts have a rate of 1200 per 100000 in a week. Just WTF man. I live where it's way lower than average but still freaky. https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/478220a4c454480e823b17327b2bf1d4

  11. The whole week I helped moving. 4 levels up, 4 levels down, and so many boxes and so much furniture coming out of from such a small apartment. I'm exhausted. Of course there is no elevator.

  14. I have a pair of broken and dirty headphones and I think to reuse the drivers and 3d print my own headphones. I need to model it first obviously and I need to find new cushions covers as the old ones are nasty.

  15. @scribus Tire fenders are practically standard here as well as half-enclosed chain guards. Also a rack is basically standard, except for mountain and racing bikes. I just looked up and I found some after-market fully-enclosed chain guards. Only "Holland bikes" have the fully-enclosed bike chain guard out of the box. I guess I never put that much attention to that feature.

  16. Lubing my bike chains was a success. Cycling feels a little bit more smoother now. I think I have a little bit less resistance so I could cycle with one higher gear than usual with the same force. Maybe my brain tricks me thinking that. At least the gunk is scrubbed off. I wonder why there are no more bike chain covers that attempt to fully enclose the chain.

  18. @zeldatra You need to rub off the long black one and get it lubed for proper performance ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  19. Today I cleaned and lubricated my bike chains. Oh boy they were filthy dirty. Basically black from all the accumulated filth. It took me two hours to clean two bikes from top to bottom.

  22. I think I've dodged the bullet. The seller of the sewing machine wanted to meet at the train station. I noped out very hard. I don't want to waste 20 eurobucks at a place where I can't test it. I lied that I found a better offer... Well... Not much of a lie when the refusal is a better offer.

  23. @scribus Well... It's not fun when all the stitches by hand are crooked, uneven, and take too much time.

  25. @scribus Agree! I have also something to add: When grocery shopping I hate when the cashier asks me if I have their app or any member cards.

  26. Welp... I have now 3 bikes. The newest addition is a folding bike. I got a used one for 120€ in a pretty good condition. I only have to add a dynamo and lights. The bell works but it is very prone of ringing by itself on a bumpy road, so I get a new one.

  27. I'm thinking about getting a folding bike whenever I have to go to the office again. One I picked out is a Brompton folding bike because it has a very nifty way to fold it very compact. However it is immensely expensive in comparison to other folding bikes. Even used and older ones are not very far away from the price of a new one.

  28. @scribus It helps to keep financing my monthly dose of comics. The raise is about as much as I pay for comics. And I read a ton of comics.
